LIAT has formally announced that it would continue with its passenger service suspension until May 31.

That announcement came several days after regional leaders agreed to reopen their borders in June for regional travel even as the number of Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases continue to increase in some territories.In a statement on the announcement, LIAT advised that it was extending the suspension of its passenger services given the current border closures and travel restrictions within the regional network.
LIAT’s Chief Executive Officer, Mrs. Julie Reifer-Jones explained that the airline continues to monitor the efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic and the further extension is necessary at this time.“While there are ongoing discussions about the reopening of borders, no firm date has been set to facilitate regional travel as yet,” she advised.
